they are pretty similar, but the riff that phil plays in dark star is in 6 and the one that he plays in other one is in 5. and phil actually tries to initiate the 5 riff in the 2/28 dark star (10:20-11:00), but nobody else jumps on it so he abandons it and plays the 6 riff instead. check it out- you can hear them back to back for comparison.

Yes, that's true - I noticed in the Transitive Axis thread that he starts the riff in 5 on 2/26, then switches to 6. But in the 2/28 Other One, he stays in 5. The mysteries of musicians...
